In his own concise, powerful, and highly personal review of the state of the nation, Bradley argues that government is not the problem. He criticizes the role of money and politics, explains how continuing on our existing foreign policy, electoral, and economic paths will mean a diminished future, and lays out exactly what needs to be done to reverse course. Breaking from the intransigent long-held viewpoints of both political parties, and with careful attention to our nation's history, Bradley passionately lays out his narrative. He offers a no-holds-barred prescription on subjects including job creation, deficit reduction, education, and immigration. While equally critical of the approaches of the Tea Party and Occupy Movements, he champions the power of individual Americans to organize, speak out, bridge divisions, and he calls on the media to assume a more responsible role in our national life. As this call to arms reminds us, we can all--elected officials, private citizens, presidents--do a better job of moving our country forward.

good to see a politician who has suggestion to improve America and not insult others. I remember when politicians actually got along and tried to compromise and that is what he recommends. bravo

I was proud to vote for Mr. Bradley back in the 1970s when an unabashedly educated, plain-speaking person was fairly common in the U.S. Senate, and much of this book contains educated, plain speaking, common sense observations about the need to put nation before spectacle. It's late 20th Century high school civics stuff. Regrettably, the book's friendly, "The solution's obvious so let's just do it" advice sounds naive today, when there's good money and power to be had through fear mongering and demagoguery.

Bill Bradley's newest book is very timely as we get into the heart of the election season. He discusses the state of the nation and steers us to what the future could be without doing something about the current situation. I enjoyed his stories, suggestions and use of history to reinforce the discussion he has begun and making the point no matter what political persuasion you are that "WE CAN ALL DO BETTER," and for change to come about we all need to start contributing to the discussion of the state of our nation.

A timely, although slim, book to read for the upcoming political season. Mr. Bradley discusses the current (political, economic) state of our country and does not like see what the future holds. He offers suggestions on how to make things better and, when necessary, uses points in history to reinforce the discussions. Whatever your political persuasion, Bradley finally drives home the point that we must all contribute to being part of the solution. This book makes the reader think about the current state of affairs.
